I think it will be pretty extensive hopefully.

Actually at the moment it is just a bunch of perl that asks you varuious
questions, for all things having a base default value.

All that and remote IP if you need that, netmask, init string (there is a
default) modem device, speed, and a few other thigns as well.

Yeah, as of now it just creates a file with only user executable
permissions. I figured that most people wouldn't install this script on
their ISP. :) But true, there are many things that need to be added.

John Hasler emailed me and told me about pppconfig. Could someone who has
it tell me about how it compares (I mean, in features, not whether it is
better or worse). I would d/l it but I have to email from work b/c I
havn't paid my ISP bill in a few. Soon I should be able to d/l it. :)
